Recipe – Sweet Autumn Butter Because… Why Not?

Well folks, it’s that time of year again: Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING.

Dunkin Donuts is bringing Pumpkin spice latte season back FIRST |  HelloGiggles

Cut to people in the Southern hemisphere rolling their eyes right out of their heads… I know… we’re pretty narcissistic up here. And we’re REALLY into pumpkin.

Although… are we? We are really into pumpkin aesthetic (and food waste… seriously, we basically grow pumpkins over here just to massacre them and then leave them to rot on the porch. There’s a horror story festering in the back of my mind about the Jack-O-Lanterns taking their revenge).

But the whole pumpkin spice thing is misleading, because a lot of our so-called pumpkin treats have little to no actual pumpkin in them. It’s all about the cinnamon, with a swirl of nutmeg, cloves, and ginger. But mostly cinnamon.

It might actually just be cinnamon season.

Either way, these have become the flavours of autumn, and I am here for it. So much so that I recently thought to myself, ‘butter should taste like autumn.’

And so it was.

A quick internet scour set me on the right track to attempt my very own Sweet Autumn Butter recipe.

Check it out below!
